. >>> and up next, mike allen with the top stories in the "politico playbook." but first, bill karins with a look at the forecast. hey, bill. >> hey, willie, good monday morning. i've called these temperatures ridiculously warm. a lady sent me an e-mail and said you know what's ridiculous? i've had my air conditioning on in arkansas in the last two days in december. it's been that warm especially in the middle of the country, and it's spreading to the east. there's a lot of fog out there this morning. look at these numbers. if i showed you this weather map in june, you'd say typical temperatures for this time of the morning. this is december. it's ridiculously warm. as far as the fog, watch out along san antonio all the way into south texas from pensacola all the way across the gulf coast into areas of mississippi and dense fog along the carolina coastline down to north florida and coastal georgia. then i think some of the worst of it as far as airports go today, we've got to watch o'hare, midway, also through cleveland, possibly indianapolis and detroit. right now visibility hovering
house budget director peter orszag and rana foroohar. and mike allen with the "politico playbook." >>> first, bill karins with the forecast. merry christmas. >> merry christmas. >> happy hanukkah. >> that probably will be the only gift. good morning. if you're in dallas-ft. worth, take your kids and look outside. it is snowing. doesn't happen all that often. a little band of snow right over the top of ft. worth, will shortly be over dallas. could drop a quarter to a half inch of snow. temperatures right around freezing. it could be a little slippery. i know you don't drive on snow that often. it is brutally cold. it snowed hard in minneapolis over the weekend. ten inches of snow. windchills in the single digits and zeros all the way down to texas this morning. now, the east coast, you are nice and warm. you don't even need the jacket today. if anything, maybe the raincoat as we will watch that front coming through. look how warm it's going to be. could even see thunderstorms today, atlanta down to new orleans. and in new england, we are watching a little bit of snow in maine this
's downward trajectory. after watching on tv, mike allen wrote he received an immediate e-mail from an astute republican official saying, pass the jam, he's toast. so is it game over for hagel? the white house certainly seemed to be backtracking this weekend. a senior official told the national journal on sunday it was fair to say obama's considering candidates other than hagel for defense secretary, so will republicans get their way again? as democrats are left scratching their heads about the possibility of the president getting rolled on a second nomination, the question for them is if hagel is really toast, is obama milk toast? i'm going right to joy reid, you don't like milk toast leadership, i don't know where you stand on toast. >> it's carbohydrate-laden, so i'm against it. >> it's the holidays. >> that's true. >> people are royally upset. hagel said objectionable things, no one, not even his people, are defending that. on the other hand, as i said, he would be, by the standards of pentagon leadership, which is its own metric, he would be a more liberal, more reformist voice for a mor
in the senate or at the white house. joining me now is politico's mike allen, chief white house correspondent. we are stalemated. there is a personal relationship between the president and boehner, but the sense that i'm getting from the white house in the last 24 hours is they were very surprised by plan b, very disappointed, and you hear both sides saying that the other hasn't given -- the white house feels that the president has put a lot on the table. >> he has, and the white house yesterday brought the top business leaders in the country into the white house. secretary geithner and others to warn them, basically to scare them that the cliff is coming. to tell them that things have gone backwards in the last 24 hours. what we see here is speaker boehner saying this isn't on us. we're trying. both sides are going to say that they're trying because you talk to people up there. they're increasingly convinced on both sides there's going to be no deal. i can tell you -- excuse me -- in the white house they're extremely concerned about what the economic and market reaction to that. it may be th
communism because i was in a rock band. we shared everything, had nothing and start. when mike allen and i wrote "a patriot's history of the united states" in 2004, we identified three major elements that made up americanism. nevertheless, we never really provided a definition of american exceptionalism, and doing our revisions over time we kind of corrective that for the next addition that we hope will be out next year. even in 2004, it seemed a natural progression to move toward a history of the world, especially the modern world. it's the modern world that we see the truthfulness of american liberty and prosperity on display. and under attack. through an amazon book review of "a patriot's history of the united states" i met dave doherty, an arkansas businessman historian, computer expert from evening shade, yes, there is an evening shade, arkansas. we first begin a top to bottom review of any -- and then over time i discovered he's a wonderful co-author and so asked him to help me with "a patriot's history of the modern world." he proved especially good in areas where i was week or and
of politics," and margaux rubio. mike allen moderates the discussion. see it live that to it -- at 8:10 a.m. eastern on c-span 3. >> this weekend, on c-span 3, american history tv, follow harry truman's eldest grandson to hiroshima as they prepare to mark the dropping of the atomic bomb. >> i don't want to argue to argue. at think we're past that. my whole purpose for being here is to honor the dead and to do what i can to visit the southern half. >> clifton truman daniel will join us and talk to us about the inspiration for his trip sunday and 9:00 p.m. eastern on c-span 3. >> the campaign to fix the debt held a forum-today on health care costs and the tax code. next, senator max baucus called on congress to extend the bush era tax cuts on incomes under $250,000. this is 15 minutes. >> welcome back, everybody. i think that was a really good group on health care. now we have special guest joining us. we have chairman baucus, chairman of the defense finance committee. we will talk about the budget negotiations going on now and the fiscal cliff. but what is really important is that senator
house correspondent for "politico," mike allen, here with the morning "playbook." mike, "politico's" lead story is how democrats are pleading with the obama campaign to share their data. lots of luck. explain. >> no, you're very wise. so this data vault that the obama campaign put together -- and there are estimates that the campaign spent $100 million writing their own software, building this database. and this isn't the old name rank, serial number databases that campaigns had in the past. this is layers and layers of data about each of their supporters. their social media contacts. their car registrations. their propensity to volunteer as well as cell phone er, e-mail. this is very valuable. as you know, that can perish very quickly. it can get obsolete. in obama world, they're talking about how to maintain this data, how to work this muscle, keep this database vibrant. they've already started this week. i think all of you probably got the e-mail from stephanie cutter, the deputy campaign manager, reaching out to the millions of obama supporters, asking them to post a story abo
it. >>> mike allen is here with the morning "playbook." we haven't talked a whole lot about jim demint leaving. i had a call with him yesterday, and he said and he believed, and i certainly understand it, he's leaving because he'll have more money running the heritage foundation than being 1 of 100 senators. and i must say -- >> running think tanks is a good thing to do. >> running think tanks, not bad. i must say, there have been several times over the past several years that people have approached me and asked me to run for senate. and every time i ask people in the senate if i should run, they go, are you kidding me? >> right. >> are you kidding me? stay where you are. >> why step down? >> yeah, don't step down. 1 of 100 is very frustrating. you hear that from every single governor that serves in the senate. stay away. so i guess jim demint is following that trend. what does that say about the most exclusive club? >> and the tea party. >> it's very telling. but first have to wish you happy slash the 'stache day. >> oh, thank you, mike. >> it's big, mike. a big day here. >> ex

and geno auriemma. up next, mike allen with the top stories in the "politico playbook." >>> first here's bill karins with a check on the winter storm that's hitting the midwest. bill. >> good morning. yesterday was bad enough in the midwest with the blizzard conditions. now we're dealing with a wind storm and heavy rain through the big cities of the northeast and soon new england. it's a rough morning for the commute. winds just gusted to 43 at jfk airport. you can imagine at the airports especially from new york city, philadelphia and northwards will have the most significant delays and cancellations on this friday. thankfully it's just rain. we're not really dealing with igs ice or snow in new england. it's a different story in the great lakes. it's a winter wonderland anywhere in the state of michigan. it snowed hard last night, northern indiana and much of the state of ohio right now is seeing snow. careful driving, interstate 70 going across the lower portions of the great lakes and the ohio valley. and the winds are gusting, too. we probably have a little bit of blowing and drift
? >> me? >> you try. but the role model for bringing people together? >> you? >> mike allen. he's right now in washington, chief white house correspondent for "politico" here with the "playbook." i was looking at the morning "playbook." there's no need to join a newspaper. >> we love newspapers. buy newspapers. >> i know. no one loves newspapers more than i do. there's so much information packed into this thing, each and every day, give us some. come on. >> and i'm going to start every day by saying come together at the top. >> all right. we like that. >> so a top story today, one of the ledges of the fiscal cliff, those automatic spending cuts that almost certainly are going to kick in. we don't see that being part of some last-second deal. hit the defense department. but the pentagon's real problem is not those cuts, but the ones that are going to be coming over the next decade. we talked to military contractors, top officials at the pentagon. they see a long period of downward decline. that after the war in afghanistan, there's going to be a period of austerity. they're calling it --
the elections of 2014. >> let me play for you an interview that norquist did with politico's mike allen. >> this president is not going to extend. he knows that he loses his leverage that way. >> okay, well, the republicans also have other leverage: continuing resolutions on spending and the debt ceiling increase. they can give him debt ceiling increases once a month. they can have him on a rather short leash, on a small, you know, "here's your allowance, come back next month if you've behaved"-- >> okay, okay, wait. you're proposing that the debt ceiling be increased month-- >> month -- >> -- by month? >> -- monthly. monthly, if he's good. weekly, if he's not. >> it does seem apparent that norquist is prepared to bring the government down if he has to, if he doesn't get his way. >> yeah, i don't know why anybody's paying any attention to him. you know, he doesn't hold any public office, he's a self-declared leader who goes around saying, you know, "this is what i want you to do." but where does he get his strength? where does he get the force that makes people pay attention to him? >>
the book. they saw mike allen wrote a piece about it in politico's playbook and. >> a young captain which set up the outpost, he wanted me to write about, staff sergeant jerod monty who had been killed, won the medal of honor posthumously and write about his brothers and lieutenant dave roller, he wanted me to write about his commander who had been killed and the fact they had some success there is in that valley, but the outpost wasn't all meaningless and for nought, they had actually done some things, so it became, as these troops became invested in the projects, it became a much larger and much more comprehensive study and i think, hopefully a better book because it is a narrative. >> and what is the role of stan crystal, of stan mcchrystal, the former commander of troops in afghanistan who later had to leave? >> stan mcchrystal makes a decision to lay the closure of the outpost. the men who come in, colonel randy george and lieutenant colonel brad brown they come in to take control of this area of operations which includes combat outpost keating in may, june, 2009 and they present mcc

for hospitals. bringing us together again up next, mike allen with the political playbook. here's dylan dryer with a check on the forecast. >> we're talking about more snow in the northeast. this time around this is not a big storm, maybe a few inches. winter storm advisories are posted from northern arkansas right through tennessee and up into the mid-atlantic region. where is the storm right now? through louisiana and arkansas bringing mostly rain to the area. as it moves eastward it will wrap into colder air. the bulk of the storm is it staying offshore. it looks like rain along the immediate coastline from cape cod, massachusetts down into southern new jersey. that dark shade of purple is where we could see 3 to 5 inches. you you go inland further away from the storm and it looks like 1 to 3 inch. just enough to make it slippery for the weekend. today looks real nice across the northeast. we'll dry it out and look for sunshine and a little chilly but it's the end sdechl after all. that's your latest forecast. you're watching "morning joe" brewed by starbucks. this family used capital one
based economy. >> the debt ceiling leverage. we have seen it used before. here he is talking to mike allen about how he sees the strategy of this playing out. >> this president is not going to extend. he loses his leverage that way. >> republicans have other leverage. they can give him debt ceiling increases once a month, have them on a rather short leash, here's your allowance, come back if you have behaved. >> wait. you are proposing the debt ceiling be increased -- >> monthly. monthly if he's good. weekly, if he's not. >> it's no -- note that in the opening offer, getting rid of essentially this debt ceiling procedure was part of that. i think probably because of precisely that. i want to bring in bruce bartlett. he's an analyst from the reagan and bush administration. bruce, you were there at the beginning of the supply side revolution, the tax revolt. i guess, what is your sense of how it's evolved and what the poll -- how the politics have changed over time. >> first of all, in the late 1970s, early 1980s, taxes were, in fact, at a historical high. more importantly, they were r
